Little killers: Emerald ash borers have arrived

MORRISON – The first emerald ash borer beetle was found in Whiteside County last week, marking the western-most confirmed sighting in Illinois. The beetle, which is metallic green and about a half-inch long in adulthood, poses a serious threat to ash trees. According to Scott Schirmer, emerald ash borer program manager with the Illinois Department of Agriculture, if the beetle goes unchecked, it could lead to the extinction of ash trees, though he doesn’t foresee that now.
